Cruise offerings abound, but making the most of your experience takes information that is harder to come by. The Essential Little Cruise Book, now in its fourth edition, is a compact collection of cruise wisdom. It holds everything you need to know for a perfect vacation at sea and answers such questions as how do you snag the best cabin in your price range, which is the best table in the dining room, and how can you get the best service from the crew.
Jim West has logged millions of nautical miles as a cruise director and doles out the answers to cruise questions with wit and style. He has sailed on hundreds of cruises, explored all seven continents, and traveled to over fifty countries. He has hosted a weekly travel radio program, written a travel column, and personally organizes and plans cruises for individuals and groups. Jim lives in Spring Valley, Illinois.
